An Everton Park Home Frozen in Time

Here at Village Buzz we thought we’d seen everything but we had to revise our opinion when we had a house at 22 Dargie Street in Everton Park's Trouts Estate brought to our notice.

Real estate agent Mary Di Marco from Madeleine Hicks Real Estate in Everton Park took us along for a sticky beak because she was bowled over not only by its size and location but by the lavish interior decoration. The house was built in 1970 and one of the last built as part of the Trouts Estate established by Sir Leon and Lady Peggy Trout.

The elegantly styled residence is impressive enough with its imposing brick exterior and hilltop location but it’s the interior that really takes your breath away. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that stepping through the front door is akin to entering a 1970s time capsule.

The superbly sized combined lounge/dining room, contains a fully working fountain, period carpets and wallpaper, a profusion of greenery and silk flowers, a selection of framed art and many ceramic figurines ranging from tiny to as large as half life-size.  This grand space opens via sliding doors to a spacious upper balcony the stunning views of both city and mountains.

The upper level comprises 3 large and uniquely styled bedrooms, all with built in robes and vanities including the master resplendent in beautiful pink furnishings and accessories. The bathroom with separate bath and shower and the largest vanity viewed for many years features gorgeous figurines with purple and mauve decorative highlights.

The lower level  rumpus room decorated in oriental style are no less impressive. We were frankly amazed at the period furnishings and the number of ornaments on display – all of which are included in the sale.

The house is perched on the escarpment provides  splendid view from two decks out towards the city and the mountains inland. Mary believes, and we agree, that the property has unlimited potential for the astute looking for a gracious period home suitable for entertaining.  The bonus is advantage of the second street frontage and the opportunity to subdivide.

The current owner designed this much-loved family home and has now reluctantly decided to sell

It is arguably one of choicer properties in Trouts Estate and built according to the covenant laid-down by Sir Leon when he developed the estate.  This covenant included t strictures such as a residence had to be a certain footprint within the property boundaries, no front fences, the homes had to be brick and have a tile roof.

The vision of Sir Leon Trout when he developed the estate was to create a Country Club and to establish the power and cabling below the street level, so no unsightly lines to obscure views.  Subsequent owners are not tied to the original covenant and have erected both front and side fences.  This vision was well before its time particularly in Brisbane.

Sir Leon and Lady Peggy, who lived at 19 Dargie Street, Everton Park undertook frequent trips to Europe and United States of America.  He based his ideas for the estate on country club estates they saw on their travels in the US.

Another feature of the Everton Park's Trouts Estate is the naming of the streets.  Sir Leon and Lady Peggy Trout were great patrons of the arts and their bequests can be viewed at the Queensland Art Gallery.  In particular they liked the artists of the Heidelberg School.  Surrounding streets include the names of McCubbin, Streeton, Bunny as well as Dargie, Raglass, Feint and O’Toole to name but a few of renown Australian Artists.

Why you should move to Everton Park

Why you should move to Everton Park

Brisbane has long been touted as the next property capital growth hub of Australia, and it looks as though the sunshine states capital may finally deliver on its promise. For years it has trailed behind Sydney and Melbourne’s property markets, but as growth began to slow in these capitals, Brisbane was predicted to be the benefactor.
